This song popped in my head today. I don't think I've thought of it in over 20 years.

I like the Ooompa Loompa treatment.

Funny little doods AimeeO. When I played this clip I at once thought of "Burnin' Down the House" by Talking Heads. Rhythm-wise not Lyric-wise.grin

Aimee, loved your playing on the sonatina in G!. Your performance sounds so spontaneous and clear! Glad you decided to share your recording.


Wayne, I hope you have solved your “midi issue”.

Ragdoll, nice to see you over here!


I’ve spent all this evening practicing Mendelssohn. As you know his music is highly addictive, so after three hours trying to play his music, I thought of drinking a large beer and listening to this captivating piano trio.

I can't imagine all the people that you know
And the places that you go
When the lights are turned down low
And I don't understand
All the things you've seen
But I'm slipping in between
You and your big... dreams
It's always you in my big dreams

And you tell me
That it's over
Wake up lying in a patch of four leaf clover
And you're restless
And I'm naked
You've got to get out
You can't stand to see me shaking, no
Could you let me go?
I didn't think so

And you don't want to be here in the future
So you say the present's just a pleasant
Interruption to the past
And you don't want to look much closer
'Cause you're afraid to find out all this hope
You had sent into the sky by now had... crashed
And it did because of me

And then you bring me home
Afraid to find out that you're alone, no
And I'm sleeping in your living room
But we don't have much room
To live

I had these dreams, in them I learned to play guitar
Maybe cross the country
Become a rock star
And there was hope in me
That I could take you there
But damn it, you're so young
But I don't think I care
And if I hurt you, then i'm sorry
Please don't think that this was easy

And then you bring me home
'Cause we both know what it's like to be alone, no
And I'm dreaming in your living room
But we don't have much room
To live

And Konstantine is walking down the stairs
Doesn't she look good
Standing in her underwear?
And I was thinking, what I was thinking
But we've been drinking
And it doesn't get me anywhere

My Konstantine came walking down the stairs
And all that I could do
Was touch her long, blonde hair
And I've been thinking
It hurts me thinking
That these nights when we were drinking
No, they never got us anywhere
No

This is because I can spell konfusion with a K
And I can like it
It's to dying in another's arms
And why I had to try it
It's to Jimmy Eat World
And those nights in my car
When the first star you see may not be a star
I'm not your star
Isn't that what you said?
What you thought this song meant?

And if this is what it takes
Just to lie with my mistakes
And live with what I did to you
All the heck I put you through
I always catch the clock
It's 11:11
And now you want to talk
It's not hard to dream
You'll always be my Konstantine
My Konstantine

They'll never hurt you like I do
No, they'll never hurt you like I do
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

This is to a girl who got into my head
With all the pretty things she did
Hey, you know, you keep me up in bed
This is to a girl who got into my head
With all these [censored] up things I did
Hey, maybe baby, you could keep me up in bed
My Konstantine

Spin around me like a dream
We played out on this movie screen
And I said,
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?

I miss you

And then you bring me home
And we'll go to sleep but this time not alone
No, no
And then you'll kiss me in your living room, oh
I know you miss me in your living room
'Cause these nights I think maybe that I miss you in my living room
We don't have much room
I said, does anybody need that room?
Because we all need a little more room
To live

My Konstantine

I too had a few beers last night Recaredo, hence the above wink

AimeeO, I hate the Umpa Lumpa's, and Gene Wilder, and that film! smile

The midi issue, was an idea I had, that seems to get more complicated the more I try to impliment it frown The mp3 to midi is a "no no" and I now realise how silly I was to think I could get software to convert mps to midi lol. The idea involves the midi trail software, has everyone seen it, it's quite cool smile

Anyway, bk laters folks, have a good day smile

Well it's usually quiet during an ABF recital but well done Recaredo, Aimee and Wayne for keeping the candle burning during the week!

Now that we have a date for the Mendelssohn recital I wonder if we'll be seeing or hearing much of each other before April 21.

Stick with the beers, Wayne. Don't try this.

Ha! I initially read that as "I had too few beers last night" and was wondering what might happen if you had too many beers hehehehe
I get hung up on song lyrics when I'm drunk too smile

Rag Doll, I love the Talking Heads! I posted some a while back.

Recaredo, thanks for your kind compliments! I wish I had more time to work on that piece, but I swore to myself I would post SOMEthing in the recital and I did!

Okay. I know I have bored you all in the past with my love affair with Wim Statius Muller and my quest for his $200 out-of-print CDs. I only catch a random piece here and there on the classical music cable channel, and the very few live performances of his on YouTube. I bought the sheet music, hoping I could play ANY piece, but it is outside of my skill set currently.

Through some Google searching, I found that one of the CDs had been reissued (with a whole extra CD tacked on of 25 other works!) and an entire other CD was made with other stuff on it! And instead of $200 USD for 1 cd with one hour of music, I got two albums with 3 hours of music (most of which I have not heard) for 48.90 euros, shipping included, from a store in the Netherlands. It came in yesterday. Can't wait 'til I can sit down and give it my full attention!

So, here is some Wim Statius Muller stuff that I have probably already posted.

Greetings everyone! smile I'm just stopping by briefly to say hello. I'm getting used to some new Sunday activities like helping with installing a new washer and dryer. Not fun cursing

Piano practice is starting to get back on track. My teacher noticed some good improvements when I had my lesson last week! I am really getting some results with the additional time I've added to my piano studies.

I guess I won't be posting much for a while as far as music goes. However, I'm looking forward to listening to all of the contributions on the thread this week. I might start tonight with listening to some of the drinking songs have been posted. I'll probably tilt a few beers after the frustrating time we're having with installing our laundry equipment.

Thanks everyone for all of the postings. Also thanks to everyone for your kind support and understanding of the changes I've needed to make I knew folks here would understand. As Aimee said, "piano comes first."

Well I must be off. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Griffin, glad to hear you’re making good improvements on the piano. We miss your postings.

Richard, impressive performance in your last ABF recital! Clearly your technique deserved a better piano than your old Yamaha. I loved that richness of details that your playing brings out from this nocturne. Congrats!

Late evening folks smile

I wouldn't know where to begin. what's been going off in my world over the last 48hrs, so I won't, but it has lead me to this song smile (I love Bjork smile )

I remember seeing this on TOTP, the only heavy metal(ish) song I ever liked smile

I'm so stupid I just realized that Recaredo was talking about the length of the video and not in a plane. grin She is way too talented and needs to give up her piano to one of us since she is perfectly capable on guitar.

Bjork is so cute. I will have to find you some more songs that are similar to increase your metal-ness. It's always a nice quality to have.

I think that if Beethoven was alive today, he'd be pretty metal.

I am tired of no one posting 'cuz they're working on Mendelssohn (says the girl who is mostly likely to crash and burn and is terrified of the red dot).

I love this song. Especially the line "I'm open to falling from grace" hehehe it's so much more fun that way! I'll have to show Billy O a picture of the lead singer.. he'll probably like her too.

More 90's fun.

Now I will go and finish cleaning up the mess I made after a failed kitchen attempt. Fun fact: When you add sugar too quickly while beating meringue it gets liquidy and splatters everywhere when you try to continue beating while reaching across the kitchen. Fun Fact Number 2: It dries to the consistency of rubber cement.

Evening!

Here’s a beautiful song by Gloria Estefan called “Mi tierra” (My land). I remember when my wife and I were dating, we lived in different places. I travelled every weekend to visit her, and this music sounded in my car often.

I can't blame Mendelssohn or Richard for me not posting anything lately. It has more to do with Debussy, Chopin, retirement preparations, and too many other things that would bore you to tears! I hope everyone is doing well. Aimee, thanks for the kitchen tip. I hope the cleanup wasn't too bad!

I got an unexpected break today. A snow storm has forced my piano teacher to cancel my lesson today. I'm not necessarily happy about that. However, I can now post this piece by Tracy Chapman. Somehow it was just what I needed today. Hope you enjoy it.

Richard, you are now a verb! We still love you, even though I am jealous of your piano-playing abilities... hehehehe

Griffin, you have an excuse until retirement, plus two months after retirement. Although if you are incorrect and Richard is actually causing your retirement, then I will revisit the meaning of the verb Richard, and will begin to wish to be Richarded daily, until I too am retired. Lovely Tracy Chapman, by the way!

Recaredo, isn't it funny how we associate certain songs with being in cars on the way to see certain people? Here's one I used to hear while driving to see a guy I was seeing in the 90's... oh young crushes! I still get a giddy rush when hearing it.
